182 Packs of Baseball - 053 - I Believe I Can Fly

We are quickly approaching the end of another month of regular-season baseball.  I don't know about you, but I'm glad we've got plenty more baseball to come.  Because more baseball means more random packs to bust open.

Today, we've got a pack of 1995 Topps Series 1.  It's a "Power Pack," so here's hoping for some POWER!

Lance Johnson - White Sox
Derek Lilliquist - Indians - WAHOO!  That's what I'm talkin' about.
Alex Diaz - Brewers
Charlie Hayes - Rockies

Doug Drabek - Astros
John Flaherty - Tigers
Ron Darling - A's
Scott Kamieniecki - Yankees
Scott Servais - Astros
Carlos Baerga (Indians)/Bret Boone (Reds) - 1994 Topps All Stars - WAHOO! Another Indians player!
Dan Smith - Rangers
Bret Wagner - Cardinals - 1994 Draft Pick
Dustin Hermanson - Padres - 1994 Draft Pick
Ruben Sierra - A's - CyberStats
Terry Pendleton - Braves

Two Indians cards (okay, so one is a tag-team card) is fantastic!  The card that get smy vote for best photo, though, is Alex Diaz - that is one kick-butt mid-air doozie, right there.  Excellent.

Each day of the regular baseball season, I am busting open a pack of baseball cards.  These are packs that I have laying around and/or that I have purchased recently on a whim.  I list the cards in the pack and scan in some of them.  I shoot for 9 cards, but sometimes I may scan more, other times fewer.  It all depends on how things hit me in that particular pack.  Oh yes, there will be duplication.  I have a TON of packs from certain brands/years.  I will, however, try to mix things up throughout the season.

For those keeping score, I know there are not actually 182 GAMEDAYS in the 2012 season.  I am counting ALL the days between Opening Day and the last day of the regular season.  Frankly, it's easier that way.  Thanks for playing along.

Also, you are welcome to claim teams/players (Max 3 total). Rules are at the following:


  1. someone needs to photoshop a cape onto that Diaz card....

  2. Ruben needs to turn that helmet around!! Too funny.
